This is my 23rd year teaching at Osceola Middle School. The time has flown by with each year bringing new experiences and new faces. I love working with students! Over the years I have taught a variety of subjects and that continues this year. Reading, writing, and history are my favorite areas and I hope to guide each student towards understanding and appreciating these subjects. Middle school is truly "the middle" with high school just beyond. It is here where strong foundations need to be settled to support success in high school and beyond.
Outside of school, I have a variety of interests including family, travel, reading, music, art, movies, and people. The Florida Gators are my favorite college team for all sports.
I anticipate a positive school year that can be achieved by mutual respect and cooperation. The classroom is a group setting for learning. A place where consideration of others is a priority; therefore, I expect adherence to school policies and procedures. Listening and participating are two very important skills for a successful classroom experience. I look forward to this years journey of growth and development as you pass through this time frame known as middle school.
